Hurtigruten’s coveted Follow the Lights tour will have your clients exploring Norway on a small group adventure of up to 24 like-minded travellers. They’ll be escorted on their search for the Northern Lights by local expert guides who were born and raised on the very coast that they’ll discover.
Available as north or southbound itineraries, the former will have guests departing from Norway’s capital Oslo where a grand city tour awaits. This sea and land voyage incorporates a ride on the famed Flam Railway, a ferry through magnificent fjords, and the signature Hurtigruten coastal cruise dubbed as ‘The World’s Most Beautiful Voyage’, beloved for 130 years by Norwegians and tourists alike.
Exploring the region like a local, unlock charming hamlets, picturesque fjords, cross the Arctic Circle and witness the magnificent Northern Lights. Along the way, travellers will ride husky sleighs, spend the night in unique accommodations – such as the Snowhotel – and explore the Medieval town of Tallin in Estonia before wrapping up the tour in Helsinki.
The Original ‘Northern Lights Promise’
If the Northern Lights don’t appear during your client’s aurora season cruise with Hurtigruten, they will receive a 6- or 7-day classic voyage for free*! All thanks to Hurtigruten’s Northern Lights Promise.
Food and community go hand in hand with Hurtigruten, which is why they have cultivated strong partnerships with local producers and suppliers along the coast. Over 80% of the ingredients in their onboard restaurants come from more than 50 local Norwegian suppliers. This means that onboard cuisine will be created from the freshest local ingredients, from fjord to fork. From fresh Arctic char, king crab, smoked sausages, award-winning cheese, local brews and spirits. Guests won’t just see the coast, they’ll taste it too.
Our world is as fragile as it is beautiful, and Hurtigruten is a steward when it comes to ensuring it will stay this way for future generations. The company has the strictest eco-credentials at sea, from its ground-breaking ships to its passion for inspiring guests such as yourself to become environmental ambassadors.
In 2018, Hurtigruten became one of the first major companies to ban single-use plastic throughout its fleet. They have also initiated one of Europe’s largest environmental ship upgrades. In 2022, they introduced their first environmentally upgraded battery-hybrid powered ship, MS Richard With, and they have just launched a second hybrid electric powered ship, MS Kong Harald, as part of the Hurtigruten Norway Coastal Express fleet upgrade.
Seven ships will feature state-of-the-art technology that significantly reduces both CO2 and nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions. This marks significant progress, but the group will continue to innovate in this area. In collaboration with its research and maritime partners, Hurtigruten is committed to its Sea Zero research project, which aims to build its first zero-emission passenger ship by 2030.
